D Repeated pregnancy, severe weight fluctuations, or even significant weight loss lead to a prominent abdomen with flabby skin and weak muscles. Abdominoplasty or abdominoplasty aims to tighten the muscle mass in the abdomen from beneath the breasts to the pubic area and to remove fat and excess skin from the lower and middle of the abdomen, which leads to a firmer and more flat abdomen .
Also, it is advised to perform a tummy tuck, for people with a hernia in the abdomen (umbilical hernia or hernia that goes through a surgical incision in the abdomen.
During surgery, the abdominal area is completely sterilized, and then the doctor makes an incision in the lower abdominal wall. The incision is made horizontally, passes through the skin, the subcutaneous layers, up to the abdominal muscles, and another incision can be made around the navel area.
The abdominal muscles are strengthened by stitches, and then the excess skin is removed. After that, the subcutaneous layer and skin in the abdominal area are sewn back into the surgical incision, ensuring that the skin is tightly uniformly and evenly spread over all areas of the abdominal wall.
Many excess fatty tissues is often not removed during surgery, except in cases where excess skin is removed with a small amount of fatty tissue. During the operation if there is a need to repair the umbilical hernia or a hernia incision, it is closed and repaired.
The surgical incision is sewn with special stitches, then dressings are applied. The surgeon leaves a tubercle inside the surgical incision, in order to drain the secretions, fluid and blood residue from the tissues. The surgery takes between one to two hours.
